I added the following line to the addOnReady function to achieve this:
jQuery("#"+this.questionId+" .InputText").attr("value", "hello");
This code has worked in March - the text entry field was automatically filled with "hello" and "hello" was also written in the corresponding row when I exported the data. However, this line does not work anymore. The text entry field remains empty and so does the my dataset. When I inspect the text entry in the browser though, I do find that the attribute value has been set to "hello".
The following line worked in March and still works today:
jQuery("#"+this.questionId+" .InputText").attr("placeholder", "hello");
What did Qualtrics change that settingthe value-attribute of a text entry field doesn't do anything anymore? What do I need to change?
